Digital Publications Search

The FPHC website provides access to hundreds of thousands of pages of digitized publications and other collections. These materials are accessible using three methods: Index Search, Full-Text Search, and Browse by Date. Most researchers will find a combination of all three search methods desirable.

Most digitized materials on the Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center website are accessible without registration. However, certain restricted materials are only available to registered users. For instance, only registered users may access the Pentecostal Evangel after 1969. Click here to learn more about becoming a registered user, which is free.

Please note that certain publications or collections are not accessible by all search methods. It is recommended that users first familiarize themselves with a publication or collection by using the Digital Publications Guide, which explains the best techniques for searching each title.

Index Search:

The FPHC has manually indexed six periodicals:

  • Assemblies of God Heritage, 1981-present
  • Confidence, 1908-1926
  • Latter Rain Evangel, 1908-1939
  • The Pentecost, 1908-1910
  • Pentecostal Evangel, 1913-2002
  • Word and Witness, 1912-1915

The Index Search allows the user to search by author, title, date, and subject. However, only the terms entered by the indexer appear in search results.

Full-Text Search:

Full-Text Search allows publications and collections that have been digitized and processed with OCR (optical character recognition) technology to be searched. The quality of character recognition for materials varies, depending upon the legibility of the original materials. Therefore, Full-Text Search does not necessarily return all instances of the search term.

Browse by Date:

The Browse by Date option allows the user to choose one or more publications or collections and a date range to view all materials within those parameters.

Index Searches and Full-Text Searches are unlikely to identify all instances of desired terms. Therefore, researchers who want to be assured that research is as complete as possible should read through all materials which are accessible with the Browse by Date option.

The Browse by Date option is also accessible under each publication or collection listed in the Digital Publications Guide.
